About the research
Research objective: The accelerated deterioration of steel and concrete bridges has caused significant problems in the management and maintenance of the highway infrastructure. To date there have been relatively few in-service vehicular bridges constructed and monitored. While the potential exists for durable bridges to be built from FRP, their performance can only be evaluated through a series of monitoring programs. This proposal to the City of Bettendorf is to allow the transfer of the monitoring/evaluation portion of the IBRC Program funding to Iowa State University to perform these tasks.
